Sneak peek at contents in WYD pilgrim kit in Krakow

2016-07-12

The Krakow volunteers and staff have publicized the contents of the "pilgrim kits” to be given out in July to youth from all over the world. 

Each young person will receive one of three backpacks, blue, red or yellow, complete with a white design of the WYD logo and various materials inside. 

There is a colored poncho, a microfiber scarf reading "Amazing Poland,” a multi-purpose handkerchief and a rosary bracelet which says, "Jesus, I trust in you.”

There are also books to help the pilgrims follow along with the Pope during the week: the Pilgrim Guide, Pilgrim's Guide Around Krakow and a prayer book called, "Jesus, I Trust in You. An Extraordinary Book on Divine Mercy.” 

Each item was carefully chosen in order to allow each person to have the ultimate experience, centered around mercy during the Jubilee Year.
